Listen and dance to amazing music, have tons of fun in the Youth Zone, wear yourself some plaid, and experience all that Festival du Bois has to offer all around Mackin Park over the weekend!
Bring your appetite! A delectable array of foods are on offer at the festival, including delicious traditional Québécois fare. Try some hearty tourtière, sumptuous poutine, smoked meat sandwiches, or dig in to some sinfully good maple sugar pie! Back this year: our signature French Lumberjack Ale, courtesy of Yellow Dog Brewing, Festival du Bois’ official beer supplier. New this year: Frencheese Raclette!
Cabane à Sucre André Beauregard Sugar Shack
A visit to the festival is incomplete without a stop at the André Beauregard Sugar Shack for some maple taffy on snow, made right before your eyes with love.
Come to Mackin Park early on Sunday for some pancakes and maple syrup with all the fixin’s: $8 (adults) & $4 (children) – not included in admission. Your breakfast is prepared by Our Lady of Fatima Knights of Columbus.
AND THERE'S MORE!
Have fun getting your face painted, create crafts, play some games, and frolic with some cool characters roaming the park: look for Danielle & Michèle, and Frenchie the Clown.
ARTISAN & COMMUNITY KIOSKS
In addition to being the centre of amazing music at Festival du Bois, the Grand Chapiteau (Big Tent) is also where you'll find the works of talented artisans for sale along with info kiosks where you can learn about local francophone and community organizations.
Tojo Sticks and Bags sells canes, sticks and leather purses and bags. And to ensure you’re attired in true Festival-du-Bois-style, don a traditional Québécois sash and stop by Froggers for a handmade froggy toque, scarf, slippers, or tea cozy!
Visit the booths of local community groups and organizations to learn how they are working to make things better. The festival welcomes the North Fraser Métis Association, Canadian Parents for French Tri-Cities, Société historique francophone de la Colombie-Britannique, Reso-Santé and Fédération des francophones de la Colombie-Britannique and more!
